trade in ags as the USD is up 29, crude oil down 31 cents (8:13 am CT), and US equities lower.  We look for a good advancement of US harvest progress over the past week into this coming week.  Talk of Brail’s Mato Grosso and surrounding areas seeing slightly
more than expected rain Thursday into Friday may ease some concerns prior to planting progress.
